The constant pins inflicted on the poor knight allow White to gain a winning position. It survives, but His Majesty doesn't.

14 ♗c1-f4 is a textbook example of a <PIN AGAINST A SQUARE>.

If the Black e5-knight moves with 14 ... ♘e5-g6?? then not only does it <LEAVE BEHIND> the c6-square for the White d4-knight to occupy but it also <OPENS THE LINE> f4-c7 of the dark-squared White f4-bishop to control the c7-square and deny that square to the Black d8-queen, <TRAPPING> Her Majesty.
